Newbie's Top Ten Commands

Filed under
Linux

Steve Campbell was once a major presence in several newsgroups and mailing lists about the same time as I. This is where we made our acquaintance and later became good friends. He was a very talented musician as well as a tremendously quick linux study and all around general purpose NUT. He kept me in stitches. Steve may have disappeared from the web, but his music, linux contributions, and memories live on. He dropped out of sight when he got himself a real life (i.e. job, wife/girlfriend/fiance...). Dirty rat...

Without further ado:

This is it, the Moment all you newbies have been waiting for, this is the list of the top ten commands that every new linux user should learn about to save time, effort and usenet flames. It is not intended to be a full description of the commands, rather it is a guide to the power of Gnu/Linux with some immediately accessible examples to try out (something that most technical documents omit, but which I believe are essential in getting the ideas involved into virgin skulls).

I want to get two things clear from the start.

First......Where the hell do you USE all these commands....

  • Imperium Galactica II: Alliances released for Linux & SteamOS, seems native too
    Imperium Galactica II: Alliances [GOG, Steam] just released for Linux & SteamOS and it looks like it's a native version. Note: My friends at GOG sent over a copy, so big thanks to them. There's no sign of DOSBox or Wine and I had no idea this game had ever been ported to Linux. Pretty awesome really for a game like this to get a proper Linux build when it gets a new release.
  • Nearly five years after the Kickstarter, Carmageddon still isn’t on Linux despite the stretch goal being reached
    The problem here, for me, is that they later did a revamp of the title called Carmageddon: Max Damage. This was to fix some problems, boost sales again and port it to consoles. Carmageddon: Max Damage also never made it to Linux. Fun fact, they actually released a trailer where they just run over a ton of penguins, make from that what you will: Not saying this was trolling the entire Linux gaming community, but it sure felt like it after their previous trolling attempts directed at our official Twitter account.
  • Valve Rolls Out New Steam Client Stable Update with Promised Linux Changes, More
    Today Valve announced the availability of a new stable update of the Steam Client for all supported platforms, including the company's SteamOS operating system for Steam Machines, as well as GNU/Linux, macOS, and Microsoft Windows. Bringing all the new features during the Beta stages of development, the new Steam Client update improves the interaction between the Steam runtime and your GNU/Linux distribution's libraries. This is a huge and long-anticipated milestone for the Steam Client, which, unfortunately, did not work out-of-the-box on all Linux-based operating systems.
